6:46 pm
the cold. so when is it getting here? >> next 24 hours. you know the announcers doing the rose parade will be bundled up like it's back in the east coast. it's rare to get 30. we think it will be 38, 39 degrees for the morning hours. the sky camera network check it out. numbers checking out at this hour across the east bay. an average of 48 degrees. for the north bay, 45. no doubt, 30s in both locations for tonight throughout the south bay. it's chilly but not as cold. hopefully, you had a great christmas, nice chanukah. you can see -- we have christmas in the park going on. looks like a nice night for that. let's look at the big time changes. we're tracking the storm system. no umbrella needed. as this drops down it will be devoid of major moisture. it's moving over the land. it's having a hard time picking up anything from the pacific. as it moves here continually to

the south over the next 24 hours, we are going to see that wind pick up all across the bay area. not just for the hills above 1,000 feet. widespread gusty winds. 3:00 to 9:00 for tomorrow. on top of the wind the second component will be the chill. not for the interior valleys of the north bay. our temperature ranges for the coast. by the way, 37 to 42 degrees. for the interior valleys of the northeast and south bay, temperatures will likely range 27 to 36 degrees. i don't think the cold weather will cause too many problems across the bay area. it's really going to begin to be a problem with that wind. after that historic rainfall we've had in december, you add 20 to 30 mile per hour wind gusts and we could see more trees, more power outages. not too bad. about 20 miles per hour. by 10:00 a.m. tomorrow, it begins to ramp up in marin and napa and -- napa also santa rosa. throughout tuesday evening,
6:48 pm
that's when things begin to pick up. we may have a few gusts in the north bay. napa about 40. from tuesday night right through wednesday, that's going to be that long duration wind event here where we may get power outages. we may not get relief in the wind department here until about 3:00 p.m. on thursday. so, again, about a day and a half of the gusty winds across the bay area. when it comes to the cold temperatures, that second part of that storm system it's going to be dropping down. but we're not going to see numbers in teens. i think the coldness weather will be in the north bay. napa 27 degrees by wednesday morning. wednesday morning is going to be the coldest of this event. livermore, 28 degrees. san jose 24. san francisco 39. a lot of locations dropping anywhere from 5 to 10 degrees where we should be on morning lows. let's take you to the micro climate forecast heading throughout tuesday. no big deal by the afternoon. sure, it will be on the chilly side. but sunny skies across the bay. san jose 54 degrees. for morgan hill, 53.
6:49 pm
focus in on the white highlighted number. that's the overnight low. some of the coldest weather in the south bay tomorrow morning, morgan hill with 35. for the peninsula, palo alto dropping to 40. san francisco, similar to mid-40s. the north bay, east bay and tri-valley tri-valley, the north bay will have the coldest weather. tomorrow morning, 34 in santa rosa. expecting 33 into napa. the tri-valley mid to upper 30s for you. the next five days is stays dry in terms of the weather pattern. sunny skies, highs in the 50s. cold overnight lows are probably wondering, still for new year's what can we expect. it will be chilly and clear skies. for fireworks celebrations it's going to be great. need to find somebody to bundle up with. the new year's kiss always goes off. if you didn't bring somebody maybe you can snag somebody. just saying. >> you're setting people up. >> matchmaker. >> you are. i like that. >> i like the way he thinks.
6:50 pm
from the bay area to ann arbor. jim harbaugh. look at how the headlines are being received.
6:51 pm
6:52 pm
try to figure this out. geraud joining us now. i guess there was a philosophical difference that caused jim harbaugh to split with the 49ers. could you explain that to us in detail right now?
6:53 pm
>> you know what terry and janelle, that's the big question. how did this happen? it probably shouldn't have happened. it was the press conference 49ers fans waited for because they wanted an explanation. why is jim harbaugh no longer their head coach. what they got was ceo jedd york and ted ball being trying to sell us. >> this wasn't jim saying i don't want to be there i'm leaving, it was a discussion that took place over a decent amount of time to figure out what is bs for everybody involved. jim and i have had conversations since he's been here. -- probably the last two to three -- we talked about different opportunities. we came to the conclusion best for us to go in different directions. >> this isn't a rebuild situation. this is a reload situation. got a lot of confidence in this team. the players in that locker room.
6:54 pm
we're going to need to make adjustments. multiple sources are reporting that jim harbaugh signed his decision at michigan. here he is arriving at a hotel before his press conference. his former players not shy about saying what they want in their next head coach. he's going to have pretty much everything that jim harbaugh had. because he was good. he was really good. you look at our who we were our identity in beginning before harbaugh even got here. we were pretty much nothing. made it to the super bowl. the reason why we play this game, to make it to the super bowl. we did that. we didn't quite pull it off. but i must say, he was definitely a fantastic coach. >> that's a heck of a record
6:55 pm
that he has. that's a high expectation for the new coach. when you want to be looked at as one of the greatest coach. hopefully he looks forward to the challenge. >> with the harbaugh story dominating the headlines, there, of course is also another nfl head coaching job open in oakland. tony sparano hoping his skit with the raiders as the interim guy will be good enough for him to lose that label in place of the permanent one. >> all i'm doing right now is be the head coach of the raiders. how badly? very, very bad. this is my team. i left my team today. i'm looking forward to starting over again with them. those decisions will be made down the road. as far as anything else with me goes, i only have one concern right now is to be the head coach of the oakland raiders.
6:56 pm
>> ironically with harbaugh in michigan -- harbaugh was the raiders owner's top choice for that head coaching vacancy. of course the competition is stiff. a lot of hotshot young assistants out there that would love to have job. there's several head coaches fired today, rex ryan of the jets, mike smith of atlanta, marc trestman of chicago. this could be a long process over in oakland right now. >> the university of michigan they knew what they wanted came out and got them. i don't know if oakland had a chance. >> hey, all the alumni wanted harbaugh. everyone involved in that big blue program wanted jim harbaugh to come back. of course, he was a quarterback there. had a lot of success. his coaching record speaks for itself. thanks so much geraud. a full half hour of sports coverage you can watch comcast sportsnet bay area tonight at 10:30. tonight at 11:00, the victims of a coyote attack tell
